progeEARTH Land Development Suite

progeEARTH

This Survey, Cogo, DTM, and Road Design software, used with progeCAD® Professional, provides a low-cost alternative to otherwise high priced Land survey, coordinate geometry, digital terrain modeling, and corridor design software including working directly with AutoCAD DWG files, without having to pay a fortune to do so.

Familiarity of AutoCAD

progeEARTH allows you to use the commands and menus you are used to, the same ones you would find in AutoCAD, and supports the same fonts, hatch patterns, model space/paper space, most of the features to have relied on in the past. The software costs a fraction of the price you would pay for an AutoCAD solution.

Perfect for Surveyors, Civil Engineers, Architects...

This software is ideal for Professional Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers who need an economical software solution. It also provides a low-cost way for Architects to communicate their data to the Engineer.

This Survey, Cogo, DTM, and Road Design software provides a total solution for importing your point data from data collector files, manual point entry, point manipulation, lot design and annotation, contours, digital terrain models, profiles, cross sections and corridor design.

progeEARTH: Survey and Cogo

progeEARTH

Unleash the power of or progeCAD® Professional with this Affordable Survey & Cogo software! Traverse and Label, Closure Reporting and our Utilities are included in the Survey and Cogo package. Other optional modules include DTM, and Road Design. Survey and Cogo is an add-on program for progeCAD® Professional. You will need progeCAD® to run this program.


Set Points


Set points by entering Northing & Eastings or pick a point. (if you pick a point on a 3D object, the elevation will be used for the point). You may also set points by entering a station and offset.

Automatic Symbols


Whenever you add points to the drawing a user definable block can also be placed there automatically, such as an iron pipe or a power pole etc. Linework may also be imported from field codes.

Point Protection


Complete point protection gives you the choice of overwriting existing points or renumbering points as they are imported.

Boundary Traverse and Sideshot


Set points using a boundary traverse or sideshot with turned angle, North azimuth or South azimuth (use vertical angle or difference in elevation).

Radial Stakeout


Select the points you need for a radial stakeout. Create a radial stakeout report using Turned Angle or North or South Azimuth.

Inverse Points


Inverse points by entering the point number.

Intersections


Find intersections by Bearing - Bearing, Bearing - Distance, Az - Az, Az - Distance, Distance - Distance, Line - Arc, and Point offset to a line.

Import/Export


Import points from an ascii file or export points to an ascii file. A file is created with Point Number, Northing, Easting, Elevation and Description. You may also create a Point List for viewing in the same format.

Manipulate Points

You may manipulate points in the drawing by moving or rotating them, you may change the elevation of a group of points, you may resize existing points in the drawing and you may also pivot the points about their placement point.

Labels

You may label the bearing (or North or South Azimuth) and distance of a line by selecting it or by picking points. You may:
label a curve (radius, length) or (delta, radius, tangent, length and chord bearing & length) by selecting it or by picking points.
Label coordinates by picking a point.
Label areas by selecting a closed polyline.
Label station and offset from an alignment (line, polyline or arc).

Bearing and Distance Listing

You may list the bearing and distance of a line by selecting it.
You may list a curve (delta, radius, tangent, length and chord bearing & length) by selecting it.

Compute Areas

You may let the program automatically compute lot areas by Slide Bearing or Radial methods.

Drafting Utilities

To help you in creating your drawing, we offer a collection of drafting aids. You may import a text file, insert a graphic scale or place crowsfeet on a line. You may Label stations on an alignment, create a profile coordinate system, label elevations by picking and extract a profile from 3d faces or from 3D lines. You may place text in a line or find and replace text in the drawing.

Traverse and Label

Allows you to draw a traverse using Bearing and Distances. You may also enter curves to the left or right (Radius and Arc length). You may also label any lines in the drawing by bearing and distance and curves by radius and arc length.

Drawing Setup

Select English or Metric units -changes the ltscale and labeling precision, changes dimscale to the scale of the drawing, it changes textsize to one tenth the drawing scale (English) and to 3mm (Metric) and it changes other dimension variables.

Draw Traverse

Draw by entering bearings and distances and curves. Good for inputing an existing boundary.

Labels

You may label the bearing and distance of a line by selecting it or by picking points.
You may label a curve (radius, length) or (delta, radius, tangent, length and chord bearing & length) by selecting it or by picking points.

Label lines

Label by selecting a line
Brg dist / - Label bearing and distance on top of line.
/ Brg Dist - Label bearing and distance on bottom of line.
Brg / Dist - Label bearing on top and distance on bottom of line.
Dist / Brg - Label distance on top and bearing on bottom of line.
Dist / - Label distance on top of line.
/ Dist - Label distance on bottom of line.
Note - Label bearing and distance with a leader to a line.

Label lines (point)

Label by selecting 2 points for a line
Brg dist / - Label bearing and distance on top of line by selecting points.
/ Brg Dist - Label bearing and distance on bottom of line by selecting points.
Brg / Dist - Label bearing on top and distance on bottom of line by selecting points.
Dist / Brg - Label distance on top and bearing on bottom of line by selecting points.
Dist / - Label distance on top of line by selecting points.
/ Dist - Label distance on bottom of line by selecting points.

Print a detailed traverse and closure report using Bearings or Azimuths describing each leg of the traverse along with the area and error of closure.

Digital Terrain Modeling

progeEARTH

Create a Triangulated Irregular Network. Use fault lines to control model. Create contours at user defined intervals. Calculate volumes. Unlimited number of surfaces. Create fully annotated profiles.


Create a TIN

Create a Triangular Irregular Network of a set of points. Any point file in the xyz format can be used to create a surface model. Fault lines may be added to the model to control the triangulation process. Boundaries and voids may also be used to control the appearance of the model.

Contours

Contours may be created at user defined intervals and placed on user defined layers.

Mesh Creation

A mesh may be created of the surface.

Calculate Cut and Fill

Volume calculations may be made between two surfaces.

Unlimited Surfaces

Create an unlimited number of surfaces.

DTM Profile Cutter

Select a polyline alignment and cut a profile from the surface. The profile may then be imported into a drawing. The program places a grid around the profile and annotates stations and existing ground elevations on a user defined interval. You may overlay the existing profile with a new profile cut from a modified surface model.

Select a polyline alignment to cut a section or profile along.

This can be as simple as a straight line or as complicated as a roadway alignment with horizontal curves.

Select 3D lines, polylines or 3D faces to cut a section or profile from.

Select existing contour lines or other topo features. A section or profile is cut from these elements.

A fully annotated section or profile may be imported into your drawing.

The program places a grid around the profile and annotates stations and existing ground elevations on a user defined interval. You may overlay the existing profile with a new profile cut from modified topo features.
